These Girls Are Fools (1950), exploitation short with nude scene


Published 1950


These Girls Are Fools was also released as Hell is a Place Called Hollywood (1950) and reissued in 1956, but may have been filmed in the '40s. This is both a time capsule and an ironic oddity. A Hollywood exploitation film about the dangers of exploitation in Hollywood. A naive girl with dreams of stardom lands her first role in a dubious "art film". (You may want to avert your eyes during the skinny dipping sequence.) Unable to get any more film offers, she is forced to work as a nude model for cheap girlie magazines. The last session shows her in bondage with whip marks on her back to illustrate a fetishistic story. Quite daring for its time. This was most likely made for independent theaters that ran seedy B-movies about drug addiction, prostitution, female wrestling, and so forth. This talky 20-minute short subject has been mercifully edited down to its essential scenes.

To see more clips and trailers in this series, search for "exploitation", "fetish film", "stag film", "sexploitation" and "nunsploitation". Other films in this series include: Olga's House of Shame, The Defilers, The Love Girls, Rent-A-Girl, Olga's Girls, Motel Confidential, Venus in Furs, Sweet Sugar, Cool It Baby, All Women are Bad, The Ramrodder, Honey, women in prison and '30s French fetish films, Irving Klaw, Bettie Page, et al.

Subject: Foolish Girl
A wide-eyed girl goes to Hollywood seeing fame and fortune, but a nude swimming scene proves her downfall.

My only question is: who's this girl? She's dynamite!
